We first heard about The Augustus from Seattle Met’s posting about Robb and Sarah Sheldon taking over the former Rogue and Peasant space, which was predicting an opening in November or December. And it sounds like things are finally in gear for an opening tonight. It has been a long process, from getting a loan for a bar to hiring the contractors to get all the redesigning done in time, but it’s finally all come together! There are murmurs from the Washington Bartenders Guild’s Facebook page about checking out the soft opening, which was confirmed on The Augustus’s Facebook page for today.
Basically, we’re all in for a grand new bar in Fremont. (We don’t have any photos of the finished space, but if Hunger’s team is on it, it’ll probably be swanky.) Given that they mentioned bacon cheeseburger sausages, I think this place is going to be a blast. Based on the Augustus’s Facebook page, they won’t be serving alcohol for the soft opening, but it’ll still be a great chance to check out the newest member of the Seattle bar scene.
Thank you, The Augustus, for the photos from your Facebook page! We wish you an awesome soft opening – and save us some sausages, will ya?
